Review: 2012 Justin Rose


justin roseOur friends at Justin have taken a big step into a new world of wine that’s completely foreign to them: Rose.

This rose of Cabernet Sauvignon is made from Paso Robles fruit, and the beefy backbone shows. A heavy shade of peach, the wine features a moderately floral nose followed by a palate that features citrus notes, crisp apple, and a touch of apricot on the back end. At first a bit incongruous, the wine develops some balance — oddly — as it warms up a bit. While rose is normally at its best straight from the fridge, this is one that works better when it’s not quite so chilly.
